Duh... don't you think of this criteria as one of top priority in decision making? Obama declared Yemen as a success model in combating terrorism just to pack the tent a few months later. Watch out for another blunder!

Exactly. ISIS would have been nipped in the bud if Obama had allowed the army to maintain a presence in Iraq.

"U.S. pullout from Afghanistan depends on developing Afghan forces" .... that is a very different tune from Obamas grand rethoric about "ending wars", isn´t it?

Of course, with this new condition, basically he will have to stay in Afghanistan forever.

The problem was, Obama was so concerned and focused about ONLY getting out, he never cared what everyone was advising him, he was largely elected to end wars and thats what he did without worrying about the ramifications. But NO ONE tells this man what to do and NO one can give him advice because he's Mr. Know it all.

"the abilities of the Afghan forces that face a tough fight against insurgents this spring."

Maybe China can help out here.
